'Shadowbane' Pre-Order Disc Ships

by Rainier on Aug. 28, 2002 @ 8:21 p.m. PDT

Set in a dark fantasy world burning with strife and unrest, Shadowbane takes the MMO genre to new heights by offering gamers an unparalleled challenge. It combines immersive role-playing with deep strategic elements such as city management, army creation, siege warfare and economic development.
Shadowbane's pre-order races are a bonus to players who want to pre-order the game and immediately explore the Shadowbane world as a Minotaur, Centaur or Aracroix. The races will be unlocked each month after its November launch for all players. The restricted races are no more powerful than any of Shadowbane's other seven races. All of Shadowbane's races have unique abilities, and the restricted races, like all of Shadowbane's 10 races, will benefit from more than 20 character promotion classes to create a unique combination of professions, classes, skills and fighting styles.

The pre-order CD contains:

  • Shadowbane Desktop Wallpaper
  • A Shadowbane Screensaver
  • A Shadowbane Video "Trailer"
  • A one-time-use promotional code to unlock three Shadowbane Restricted Races: Minotaur, Aracroix, and Centaur.

Customers who pre-order Shadowbane online at EBworld.com, Gamefixx.com and Gamestop.com will only receive the code for the restricted races through those respective online retailers. Additionally, Mac gamers will be able to pre-order Shadowbane from Apple.com/games, where they will receive a promotional code to unlock the restricted races. More details about the pre-order program can be found on the Shadowbane Web site.

 

Developed by Wolfpack Studios, Shadowbane takes the MMO genre to a new level by offering gamers an unparalleled challenge that combines role-playing and strategic elements. Shadowbane is the first MMO to offer a Dynamic World Model, in which players' actions and decisions permanently change the history, politics and landscape of the game. Players will utilize both role-playing and strategic elements for city management, army creation, siege warfare and economic development. Shadowbane gives players the power to change their world.
